Miriam Schapiro, feminist art instructor at California Institute of the Arts, talks with Beth Bachenheimer, artist from CalArts in the Feminist Art program at Cal Arts. Schapiro talks about how women have historically been denied a well-rounded education, and discusses the planning and exhibition of Womanhouse, what would become the first large-scale feminist public art installation. Bachenheimer then discusses her experiences in the Feminist Art Program and with the construction of Womanhouse.
Miriam previously erroneously cataloged as Shapiro. Box says "Dextra Frankel, curator of the Fullerton State College Art Gallery; and a variety of Los Angeles artists discuss the cooperative effort of women to show their work." - they are not featured on this recording.
